Back to Top
In 2000, an oral history project was undertaken by Irish Life and Lore www.irishlifeandlore.com on the Battle of Jadotville. Some of the survivors of the battle were recorded for the project. Between 1960 and 1964 the Irish Army forces were involved in a peacekeeping mission with the UN in the Congo. On 13th September 1961, A Company 35th Platoon, numbering 152 men under the command of Kerryman, Comdt. Leo Quinlan, fought in a fierce battle which lasted 6 days and nights against the Katanganese Gendarmerie forces numbering between 2/3,000 troops. Remarkably, no Irish soldier was killed.This podcast examines stage by stage the events as they unfolded, leading to a truce and a subsequent surrender.
